Interview With ‘Legion’ & ‘Fargo’ Cinematographer Craig Wrobleski
  |  @   |  

2017 has been a great year for television, and it’s not even half over. My choice for best show this year is far and away FX’s Legion. Created by Noah Hawley, who also brought Fargo to FX, Legion is based on Marvel’s X-Men character by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz. The show’s unique visual style is one of the reasons I loved it. It is truly unlike anything else on television, and TV is riddled with superhero shows. One reason for its stunning look and unique feel is the cinematography. Last weekend, I got a chance to interview cinematographer Craig Wrobleski who worked with Hawley on three episodes of Legion as well as season 3 of Fargo. Wrobleski has worked behind the camera since the late 90s, and talked with me about working on two of TV’s most popular shows, and collaborating with one of television’s best writers.

‘Fargo’ Season 2 Trailer: “I’d Like A Chocolate Glaze”
  |  @   |  

Season 2 of Fargo will take an interesting turn. Instead of moving forward, the series will turn back time and be set in a post-Vietnam War era. Lou Solverson, who was played by Keith Carradine in season 1, will be played by Patrick Wilson in season 2. Having just returned from Vietnam, Solverson has been assigned to investigate a crime between a small-town gang and a major Mob syndicate.

As you can see in the trailer below, it looks like season 2 will be just as dark and twisted as season 1. Not to mention just as funny.

Bruce Campbell Joins The Cast Of ‘Fargo’ As Future President Ronald Reagan

Actor, director, author and international geek icon Bruce Campbell has more than the upcoming Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead on his slate of future acting projects. He just signed on to play none other than actor-turned-politician Ronald Reagan on the critically acclaimed hit FX series Fargo.

Fargo, which is based on Joel and Ethan Coen‘s Oscar-winning 1996 comic thriller of the same name, premiered early last year to rave reviews, great ratings, and went on to win three Emmy awards and two Golden Globes (one of the latter went to star Billy Bob Thornton). The second season will be a prequel to the first and take place in the late 1970s, when Reagan was mounting his first campaign to be President of the United States.

‘Fargo’ Season 2 Adds Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Jean Smart & more
  |  @   |  

As far as 2014 in TV shows go, Fargo is one of the best. Because of the resounding success and acclaim the miniseries has received, FX ordered a second season. However, the upcoming season wouldn’t follow Molly and Gus Grimly solving a series of murders in their small town again; instead, it will center on a younger Lou Solverson (played by Keith Carradine in season one) returning from a tour of duty in Vietnam, and the incident that occurred in Sioux Falls, SD, which was often mentioned during the first season.

Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst were the first to be cast in the new season as a married couple. Now, it has been confirmed that Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) has been cast as the younger Lou Solverson. Ted Danson, Jean Smart, Nick Offerman, Brad Garrett, Kieran Culkin, Bokeem Woodbine, Jeffrey Donovan, and Angus Sampson are all also confirmed to have roles in the new series. Hit the jump for more.

‘Fargo’ Season 2 Adds Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst As Husband And Wife Couple
  |  @   |  

The first season of FX’s Fargo, based on the Joel and Ethan Coen film of the same name, was the kind of slow-burn dark comedy crime drama that I crave. It actually would have been fine if the series was just that one story arc. But earning the kinds of acclaim and acolytes it did after its debut, it only made sense for the network to ask Noah Hawley to write the series’ second season.

Though Fargo didn’t take place in the same city, it did have some nods to the film and used the same tones. Now season two will be pretty much the same. Rather than take place after the events of the first season, season two will take place long before Lorne Malvo and Lester Nygaard ever crossed paths. Rumor has it Jeffery Donavan and Nick Offerman have been offered roles, but have yet to be confirmed. What has been confirmed is that Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man) and Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad) are joining the series. Hit the jump for more.
